After writing about the AT104/105 SAXON a week or so back I asked Rolf about his BAFV6; SAXON APC at £6.99. "Trust me" he said, "You'll like it". So, throwing caution to the wind.... I ordered two.
Liberation Miniatures: BAF6 SAXON APC
WEA18B GPMG on AFV Mount
These are cracking models and scream WINTER of '79. The Liberation Miniatures web page boldly claims that their resin models are "PROFESSIONALLY VACUUM CAST AND ARE QUALITY CONTROLLED . THEY ARE NOT RIDDLED WITH AIR BUBBLES OR WITH MISSING SURFACE DETAIL" .
Bold as it is, that claim is spot on. These are the first resin vehicles I've bought from Rolf and I am seriously very, very impressed. There are a few, and I do mean just one or two, pinholes, but no breaks, bubbles, seams, webbing or flash. Just crisp detail which needs the bare minimum of preparation.
The SAXON is essentially a one piece armoured box and the kit naturally reflects this. The 'roofrack' is filled with moulded 'bergans' and four metal wheels complete the kit. In order to break up the boxy outline I ordered pack WEA18B 2x GPMG on AFV Mount (illustrated).
What can I say. I have absolutely no hesitation when it comes to ordering any more resin vehicle kits from Rolf at Liberation Miniatures. So I'll round out the platoon/troop with a 3rd wagon next month. The SAXON itself - RECOMMENDED!
